Winemaker Notes

Incredible color — could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spicy red fruit and black cherry cola aromas with notes of rose petal and cocoa. The red berry and black cherry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of black licorice keeps the mouth watering.

This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well. It pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Really goes for the gusto and pulls it off, with dark fig sauce, melted purple licorice, mocha, fruitcake and crushed boysenberry and blueberry fruit all gliding along rich, velvety tannins. Long mouthfilling finish.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The purple/black 2007 Luca Malbec was sourced from a 43-year-old ungrafted vineyard and aged for 12 months in 60% French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It reveals an alluring nose of smoke, cedar, spice box, black cherry, and rose petal. Full-bodied on the palate, the wine is well-balanced, layered, and intense. There is enough silky tannin to support 2-3 years of additional bottle age. Drink this tasty Malbec from 2010 to 2018.

Luca is the personal project of Laura Catena, M.D., daughter of Nicolas Catena, the founder of Catena-Zapata.

Luca
Laura Catena is a fourth generation winemaker who grew up in a traditional Argentine-Italian winemaking family in Mendoza. Laura splits her time between Mendoza and San Francisco, California, where she is an emergency physician, university professor and occasional tango dancer. Laura had the vision of creating a new breed of Argentine wines: small quantities, artisan quality, and true to their individual terroirs. A pioneer of small-grower relations in Mendoza, Laura's incredible, limited production wines come from some of Argentina's best fruit from low-yield, high-elevation, family-owned vineyards. The wines are named after her children - Luca, Dante and Nicola - and the background of the label is the McDermott coat of arms of her American husband, Daniel McDermott.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
